Kings and Queens

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings get spring started hot


There are lots of neo-soul revivalists bringing that ol' shimmy back, but none have the pure swagger of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings.

Since forming in 2001, they've blazed a trail of sweaty audiences across the globe. Not even a cancer diagnosis could keep Jones down. With a proudly shaved head, she's as powerful as ever.

Her backing band is no slouch, either; they've worked with Muse, Amy Winehouse, and David Byrne.

They're coming to the Showbox for two nights in April. Tickets are going fast, so we thought we'd tip you off early.

Dap-Kings shows tend to go on and on till the break of dawn, so wear comfortable shoes and be ready to grind.

Here's the video for "Stranger To My Happiness" off their just-released Give The People What They Want. Get it bumping now so your hips are ready for April.

You might also want to call your chiropractor, just in case.
